WASHINGTON (AP) - Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is wondering how Sen. John Kerry even knows her name.
Kerry mentioned Palin in his Democratic convention speech Thursday night.
Kerry was criticizing Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for saying that Russia is the America's top geopolitical foe. He mentioned that Palin famously said in a television interview that in Alaska, she could see Russia. Kerry said Romney's view of Russia comes from the movie "Rocky IV."
Palin says that Kerry diminished himself by mentioning her name. She said "big wig elites" aren't supposed to waste their time on, in her words, "the little people like me" who represent average Americans. She says it's funny that Kerry knows her name.
Kerry was the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004.
Palin spoke on "Fox Business Network."
